Full Description
From the vaulted ceiling, to the exposed stone walls and limestone flagged floor, our traditional 200-year-old Westmorland stone barn offers a unique rustic elegance that can be tailored to suit any style conscious couple’s theme. Enter through our traditional oak barn doors and walk up the aisle surrounded by all the character you could wish for, before you and your partner exchange vows under our enchanting canopy of festoon lights, or under our handcrafted outdoor pavilion with its stunning scenic backdrop. For couples seeking a church wedding, there are several beautiful historic churches nearby. In addition to the main barn we have a spacious adjoining Reception/Bar area with a striking floral canopy, cosy seating areas, and timber panelled bathrooms. Guests are also able to enjoy our outside areas, which offer stunning views of the surrounding scenery from a landscaped lawn and patio which feature natural wooden seating and a thatched gazebo. Eden Barn is run by the Harker family and we are conscious that this is your day and we want to make our venue feel personal and special to you. Catering is provided by our sole supplier Southcott Events, who can create bespoke menus using locally sourced produce, and serve your evening food in style from ‘The Shack’. The accommodation brochure on our website, www.edenbarn.co.uk, highlights the excellent local accommodation available nearby. We also have an on-site business from which you can hire tables and chairs. We are located in Little Musgrave, 3 miles from both Kirkby Stephen and Brough, and 4 miles from the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The nearest train station is only 5 miles away and is on the idyllic Settle to Carlisle Railway line. Eden Barn is also close to Appleby and Ravenstonedale.

I could not recommend this venue enough, it’s a hidden gem!
Eden Barn was the first venue we visited and as soon as we left we knew we wanted to get married there. All other viewings arranged were cancelled! The Harker family are so welcoming and we had complete faith in them that they would help to make our day as special as they possibly could. Nothing was too much for them and they were always happy to offer advice but let us do our own thing as well. We also want to mention Southcott, their caterers - outstanding as well, food and service is amazing and again, nothing was too much trouble. I could not recommend this venue enough, it's a hidden gem-get booking before everyone else catches on! Would also recommend The Inn at Brough for wedding party/guests, they were very welcoming and good value for the rooms!

The most stunning venue
We had our wedding at Eden Barn in October and there's nothing that we can say that will actually do it justice. We fell in love with it the moment we walked in and they have done so much with it since that moment it really is breathtaking. Cliff and Carolyn are just incredible and there is nothing that they won't do for you. They are on hand the whole time to make sure everything goes as it should and they think of things that wouldn't cross your mind. They really are a fantastic couple who should be so proud of everything they have done with Eden Barn in such a short time. The great thing about this venue is that you get choose all of your own suppliers (Cliff and Carolyn do provide a list of recommended suppliers should you wish to use it) and there is no corkage charged either so you can provide your own welcome drinks and table wine etc which is a massive saving. We really can't say enough about this amazing, beautiful place. We couldn't have chosen anywhere better for our special day.

Incredible and beautiful venue
The most beautiful and special venue. We were the first couple to get married in the barn after the new bar was built- it far exceeded our expectations. The Harker family were so lovely and couldn't do enough to help us in the lead up and on the day. Such a magical place!

Awesome venue, wonderful people
What an incredible location, beautiful venue, and absolutely wonderful owners. We couldn't imagine getting married anywhere else. The styling of Eden Barn is just stunning, the decor, tables, bar and furnishings are all done to such a high quality. Our guests were just as blown away as we were by the sheer beauty of the place. The owners are wonderful, and help you to think of things you may not have even thought of. If you're looking for a beautiful barn in a spectacular location, Eden Barn really is wonderful. We had the most perfect wedding, and wouldn't change a thing.

Magical location, perfect venue!
Everything about this venue is utterly incredible! The location is completely breathtaking; the barn, bar and decor are all stunning; and Cliff, Carolyn and Andrea are an absolute dream to work with! We kept our decor to a minimum as you really don't have to do much to this venue as it is perfect as it is! The barn is rustic and beautiful and the new bar has been designed to perfection! The Harker family are the most incredible team, nothing was too much to ask, they were on hand to ensure everything ran smoothly, and their support throughout the planning process and on the wedding day was amazing. They truly are some of the best people you will ever meet and we will feel forever blessed to have met them and to have been lucky enough to have had our wedding at Eden Barn!
